12-Oct-2010 - Charm Sprite Hunting

If you’re a practised hunter with a passion for Summoning, you’ll be able to turn your skills to good use and bag some handy rewards in the process, with this new Hunter skill update (for players of level 72+).

The Taverley druids’ constant forays into the Spirit Realm have had an unforeseen impact on RuneScape. Invisible creatures, which are actually the power contained within charms, are spilling out into our world. Yaktwee Swinmari Cianta, aged gnome hunter and self-proclaimed “jack-knife-of-all-trades”, expounds the virtues of staying in shape by capturing these “pesky little critters”, more commonly referred to as charm sprites.

Doing so requires the keen eyes of experienced hunters to spot when these creatures are in the area, honed reactions to target and reveal the critters, and cool, calculated aiming in order to capture them as they rush to get away! The more charm sprites you manage to capture, the more Summoning charms you’ll earn.

Summary:
Where to hunt charm sprites:

Talk to Yaktwee south of the Tree Gnome Stronghold's main gate.

Requirements to hunt charm sprites:

72 Hunter
4,000 coins to buy the necessary equipment from Yaktwee.
Six free inventory spaces are recommended.


In other news...

The Conquest activity's champion units have had their health reduced slightly.


Many of the Make-X menus in the game have been redesigned. The new version doesn’t require you to right-click to choose Make-X or Make-All. Also, wherever the new menu offers Make-X, it also offers Make-All, so you won’t have to keep typing the same numbers manually. Some of the newly introduced Make-All options include smelting ores, fletching bows and crossbow stocks, and other such popular skill activities.

We’ve also added a couple of new ranged and magic options for low-level players. Rangers might like to get hold of the new sling weapon, which doesn’t need any ammunition to use, and mages should give the new level 1 Wind Rush spell a try as it only requires air runes to cast – or free with a staff of air equipped. Slings are dropped by creatures in the Lumbridge Catacombs (and Kayle’s bow has instead now become Kayle’s sling).

Finally, a handful of low-level monsters in the free-to-play area – including giant rats, giant spiders and goblins – have been rebalanced to be more interesting for new players to fight, which has been made possible by the changes made to life points earlier this year. They’ll also provide handy target practice for the new slings and spell.

As soon as I saw this on the forums, I ran down to Gnome Stronghold.

I really hope this will be a good way of obtaining charms. (At least 50 crimsons per hour.) and that it won't be just another D&D... =\


Hm, it seems that they drop charm slices, instead of charms. And you need 10 slices for 1 charm. Does this mean, we have to catch at least 500 of these, an hour, just to get 50 crimsons in 1 hour? 500 per hour would be... 7.2 seconds per sprite.

Huzzah, a hunting update. Should be good.

Also, huzzah, the Champion's been adjusted. It was overpowered, so hopefully this will fix things.

About time they lowered the HP of Champions, they are way overpowered. Now just make the soldiers move faster and it'll be good!

The way they describe the Charm Sprites makes it sound like it is similar to imp hunting, which I guess makes sense given how useful charms are.

I hope it's good hunter experience. It looks much more engaging than penguins or salamanders, so I might just do this for my hunter exp. I'm kind of surprised that there are three different sprites that require the same hunter level to catch. Also, I imagine that fans of Conquest will be happy to see champions become a little more balanced.

EDIT: Kudos to Jagex for making ranged and magic training viable options for beginners.

Far less patch notes this week.

Ive finally been online soon enough to see the system update for an update... and it only took about 7 years of more or less weekly updates.

too bad i have 7 hours of class today.

glad they are introducing a new way to get charms other than combat. wonder if they are going to expand it to other skills as well.

I wouldnt hold ur breath on it being good charms.

According to kb.
Catching a sprite only has a CHANCE of giving a charm slice.
10 slices in matching colour required to make 1 charm.

So if your extremely lucky you're looking at I'd say 15+ catches per charm.

Finally they may have just fixed the beginning players' problems with Ranged and Magic! That definitely is the best update I've seen this month. :thumbsup:

I hope the slices stack otherwise you will only be able to make 2 Charms per Invo.

Don't get your hopes up, summoning is still supposed to be a combat skill, so this update won't give the best charms/hr.

Where is it said that it's supposed to be a combat skill? Some of the familiars I use most are non-combat.

One huge "WHAT?" at the low level update.
Free spell with Air Runes? Isn't magic being AFKed enough already in Lumbridge Cellar?
Ranged - Not needed, might be something to work with in the future though. It has potential, but not the way it is now. (How fast/slow are these? I hope slow, seeing it's only a bit weaker than a Bronze Arrow.)
Though, overall, not needed. Plenty of Runes/Arrows available in the Catacombs/SoS. And you generally don't stay a low level for too long.

You get combat levels from leveling your summoning? Doesn't that make it a combat skill?

It's looking bleak. 10 Charm pieces to get a charm, and they all have to be matching colours. Great...

Maybe it's just me, but I've found that Summoning has given me 12 combat levels since I started gathering charms. :rolleyes:
